Contribution Terms of Service

Zimbabwean Lives Matter Archives is a freely available resource for students, scholars, teachers, and the greater community. It seeks to ensure that the historical record of these events will include diverse perspectives from people whose lives have been directly impacted by the complex events surrounding the context that has given rise to the #ZimbabweanLivesMatter movement.

People are invited to contribute original digital content, including photographs, video, audio, and stories related to memorials, community meetings, rallies, and protests occurring in Zimbabwe and beyond.

Contributed content is publicly available and is subject to an evaluation process. Materials containing unrelated or offensive content will not be accepted. Some materials that are relevant to the collection may be marked as private and made available only to researchers, including materials containing content that could be incriminating.
